Booknotes II (Aug '14)

New Arrivals:

1. From Vicksburg to Cedar Creek: The 22nd Iowa Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War
by Thomas P. McKenna (Camp Pope Publishing, 2014).

This is the first modern regimental history of the 22nd, an Iowa regiment that served in both western and eastern theaters.  It is unusual for this publisher to release both cloth and paperback editions at the same time.

2. That Furious Struggle: Chancellorsville and the High Tide of the Confederacy, May 1-4, 1863 by Chris Mackowski and Kristopher D. White (Savas Beatie, 2014).

The ECW crew takes their proven formula to the Chancellorsville battlefield. I hope they emerge farther west someday. On a related front, the co-authors wrote a great book about 2nd Fredericksburg and Salem Church which was published a short time ago.
